Subject: Who pays by Ferryman? - BCS Oxon Meeting - Its This Thursday!!!

Dear Mr Kergon,

I am dropping you a short reminder that the October BCS Oxfordshire Branch
meeting is on this coming Thursday (16 March 2000) at 7:30pm.

With E-commerce via the Internet being one of the fastest growing
technologies, The Food Ferry is one of the longest established home-gocery
shopping businesses.

The Food Ferry have built up an enormous bank of knowledge and experience in
the art of telephonic and e-commerce transactions; in enlightened customer
service at-a-distance; in local fresh food supply chains and in direct
delivery into the customers' home. Everything they do is handled by their
computer systems and they are dependent upon the internet for an increasing
percentage of their business.

James Millar, Strategic Director for The Food Ferry will be giving a general
presentation on who The Food Ferry are, what they do and what methods and
systems they use in converting experienced supermarket-shoppers into
ecstatic home-shoppers.... and then retaining them.

We will be handing out CPD certificates at the end of the presentation.  If
you haven't already done so, it would be a great time to start your CPD
records.

Please look at the web site

about this presentation.

We will be holding the meeting at the Wolfson Building, South Parks Road,
Oxford.  Please use the link below to see a local map.
